Dealers are advertising $24500 +TTD for 4wd SR5s. I would think a 2wd would be quite a bit more than $500 cheaper. (That $24500 assumes you apply the $2500 toyota rebate toward the purchase.)
If your price is 24,000 in lieu of the rebate (i.e. taking the financing) it might be a good deal. I don't know what invoice is on a 2wd 4runner. Personally, I wouldn't go any higher than invoice minus the rebate. Those cars are just sitting on the lots right now.

5k off msrp was nothing to write home about in the 4 runner the last few years about now. Should be more off with the slowness of the buisness. If you look up the price of a used 07 like yours on kbb.com with 17000 miles on the odometer it probably has a trade in value of almost 10000 off msrp. Even this number may be optimistic. So about 7000 off msrp wouldn't exactly be giving it away.

Optioned as it is, it looks like you're right at invoice minus the rebate. I would have thought invoice would have been lower. Dealers are also getting $500 marketing support and they have their holdback of several hundred dollars. I certainly wouldn't pay more than that offer, but I think I would try to squeeze another $500-1000 out of them. You may also want to see if the incentives change next month. They may even combine it with the APR. Good luck!
#1688 of 2055 2WD 4.0L V6 Sports Edition - Dallas Area
Jul 24, 2008 (8:22 am)
I am in the market for 2WD 4.0L V6 Sports Edition vehicle. I am in the Dallas Area. Can anybody help me what is the best deals available now for this vehicle, plus would appreciate if anybody can point out what are must have options on this vehicle.
Thanks in advance

Sport Edition already comes with couple of extra options, but if you really want to get a good price, don't ask them to add anything on to the Sports Edition. If they have it in stock in the lot and you like what you see, you tell them you'll buy it that day if they give you the price you looking for. Adding extra options to the Sports is unnecessary, since it already has many extras. If you want toyota navigation system and leather seats, you probably better off looking for the Limited edition than Sports.
Word of advice. Since gas prices are going up, is it really worth buying this car?
I have '07 Sports Edition. The car's average MPG (city and highway) is 17.6
And also it started to rust in the rear underneath. I would not buy 4Runner.
#1690 of 2055 Lease Cap Cost?
Jul 27, 2008 (5:35 pm)
First time leaser and don't know what I should be looking at for a cap cost.
Right now looking at a 36 month lease on a '08 4Runner Limited V6 RWD. The dealer is quoting a cap cost of invoice, advertising fee, $10 gasoline charge, $434 for Sirius sat. radio, and $500 dealer "profit".
Is that something I should negotiate down on considering the economy and car buying climate?
Much thanks in advance for any/all help on this.

Very much so. I would be looking for invoice minus incentives. That's what I paid for a 4runner in '05 when gas was under 3 bucks a gal.

Also needed to add, three Toyota dealerships in the area have all shown me the same rebate sheet that shows I can either take a $2500 rebate on the cap cost OR take a money factor of .00050.
I assumed the money factor would be the better of the two to take, but too new at this to know for sure.
